If you caught this week’s Father Brown mystery (in which the investigating vicar suspects foul play at a seminary), you may have spotted actor Dudley Sutton who played Father Francis Palfreyman. He’s not what you’d call a household name but keen-eyed viewers may have recognized him from some other series UNC-TV has broadcast.
Going back to the 1980s, Sutton portrayed Mr. Carter on a charming series called The Beiderbecke Affair. Not long after, he appeared as Tinker on Lovejoy. However, more recently Dudley Sutton played Nana Moon’s fiancée on EastEnders (although the episodes originally aired in 2004, UNC-TV aired them in late 2013).
